U.S. 41 re-opened in east Hillsborough after truck fire

TAMPA — U.S. 41 was reopened between Port Sutton Road and Madison Avenue near Palm River late Thursday afternoon after a tanker truck fire was extinguished, authorities said.

Hillsborough County firefighters responded to the burning vehicle about 2:30 p.m. at U.S. 41 and Port Sutton Road. The tanker had been traveling south on U.S. 41, carrying molten sulfur and fertilizer, when insulation between two layers in the tanker caught fire. The road was closed in both directions while crews extinguished the fire. No one was injured.
